Tybee Island has landed a starring role in the new Miley Cyrus movie, and audiences seeing the film next year won’t have to wait for the credits to find out the name of the beach town filling the screen.
The movie features 16-year-old Cyrus, the star of “Hannah Montana,” as a teenage girl struggling with her parents’ divorce who tries to reconnect with her father during a summer at his home in a quiet beach town.
Location managers for the movie “The Last Song,” starts filming on Tybee next week. Filming starts Monday on Tybee Island, 12 miles east of Savannah, and is expected to stretch into mid-August.
Filmmakers will spend several days shooting at the island’s fishing pier, which will mean closing the attraction to visitors periodically, and roadblocks will go up around the beach house being used as a location.
Work began today on a beach house on South beach that will be featured in the movie.
Below is the beach house that they are setting up this week, that will be featured in the movie.
